Diving into Walt Whitman

I enjoyed making this video. I love poetry. Hope you will enjoy my reading from “Leaves of Grass” by Walt Whitman.

I have been reading poetry under the sunlight after the first snowfall in West Lafayette. The book I am reading now is called “Leaves of Grass” by the famous poet Walt Whitman. I am reading from Autumn Rivulets in the book. The first poem is “To a Foil’d European Revolutionaire”, the second is “This Compost” and the third is the last few passages of “Song of Prudence”.

“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.”

And I never miss the chance of using this quote of Leonard Cohen.
